Thats very kind of you Smiler, thankyou. Yes ,I'm still repairing clocks, I just love it.Also I'm still working  at a stockfeeders store, throwing bags of chaff around for horses which  I also help to break in and train. Never a dull moment, I should be retired but I like working and having a joke with the customers.  We have four children and five grand children and they keep me on toes at 74yrs. Are you in touch with many of the old guy's? Tony Payne surprised me a couple of years ago, knocking on our door, cor blimey, could've knocked me down with a don'know what.

   Anyway Smiler I'll leave it at that before it turns into a novel, look after yourself mate, and regards to you and your family.............Jack  [Aus]
